Laura Lee-Georgescu
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Gowanus



ARTIST STATEMENT:

In my abstract work, I begin by staining the canvas. This technique evolved from watercolor application and a type of mono-printing with oil paint, which I have used for portraiture paintings and installations. These "stain paintings" are both explorations of aerial landscapes and color studies evoking a physical sensation.

I want the colors and organic forms to remind the viewer of familiar substances, textures, and elements of landscapes, such as rivers, smoke, light, cliffs, and the horizon. The shapes and suggestions of color approach being representational, but at the same time the physical plastic paint has a material identity of its own, existing as a tangible surface on cloth. There is a dimension to each area of color that the viewer perceives as either flat, implying perspectival space, or fluctuating between those two visual effects. As critic Jeremy Polk says, “It is the delicate nature of the treatment of the cloth that draws you in and begs you to look for more. The boldness of color in certain areas counterbalance the softness of others, and the treatment of the painted lines move you all over the composition."

Ultimately, through this kind of landscape painting, I want the viewer to be aware of their place in nature and visually understand the environment they inhabit." -Laura Lee-Georgescu
